Stephen's job has him traveling a lot during this season. Since Jackson is in school we never have the opportunity to go with him. When I found out he was going to be in Thatcher during part of Spring Break I immediately decided we too would be going. Plus it is basically a free trip since he was going for business anyway. The kids were Super excited about staying in a hotel and couldn't wait to go swimming. So I set out to find a hotel with a heated pool. I found one but once we got there we realized the hot tub was out of commission and that heated just means "not freezing" but the kids didn't care they swam anyway!
Hudson is the prime candidate for Hand me downs- he is constantly getting them, either from jackson or conway. To say he loves hand me downs would be an understatement. He is completely beside himself, he immediately puts the new stuff on and can't stop talking about it. Well the other day by mistake Hudson received these roller blades from Cons. The next day and a half wasn't pretty. He would NOT take them off- so much so that he was getting in trouble. He was falling down every second ( though nothing phased him he got right back up) running into people and things (OW!). He even tried to wear them to school and when I said no he tried to take them in his backpack. Needless to say when we realized his receiving them was by mistake I was MORE than happy to give them back. But at the end of that 36 hrs. he had improved a ton and they did make him sooo happy. Another time!
